| Gooey Plot Redeemed by Cast and Crew
When a sensitive but nerdish accountant hires the girl who broke his heart in high school as a dating coach, you know exactly how this movie is going to turn out. When each segment is given a neat chapter head offering the Lesson in What Women Want for a Good Relationship and Men Should Want Them Too, you just know that some women are going to force their boyfriends to watch this with them, punctuating the instruction with "Why don't you ever do that?" Later, when those boyfriends leave for other women, they will be extremely confused.

Despite my distaste for the narrative stupidity of this movie, I enjoyed it. Mostly I attribute it to some excellent performances by the leads -- Eric Mabius really seems to know how to act for the camera -- and a wonderfully silly small turn by Kathy Najimy. There is also some beautiful photography, particularly a marshland sequence near the end.

I think you'll enjoy this one, but please, ladies, if you force your boyfriends to watch this and insist on asking him why he doesn't do these things, don't poke him in the ribs to emphasize your point.
